Great new philosophy podcast on love, happiness, and the meaning of life
This is a really great new podcast! Wonderful philosophical and theological reflections on love, happiness, and the meaning of life. I am excited for the future episodes and will be following with much interest.
This podcast is new, but already wonderful. Rigorous in content (brilliant academics in every episode), yet accessible for everyone. And they discuss amazing books!
best philosophy podcast
I love this podcast! It doesn't presuppose that you've read the works under discussion, but it still gets into the texts in depth and makes you want to read them and think about them.
